He and best friend, Dolla Boy, also known as Earl Conyers, self-released their debut album, "United We Stand, United We Fall", in 1997. The album caught the attention of Ludacris, who signed them to his Disturbing tha Peace label, and the future seemed bright. Unfortunately, 2 Chainz was shot, and Dolla Boy was put in jail, so their career aspirations were necessarily put on hold.
